Literature Group - meetings are held on the last Tuesday of the month from 10am-12 noon.
The idea is to spend time on the books or poetry which have influenced writing and thinking to the present day. An author, book or poem is chosen by the group to study for the next meeting, or meetings.
For instance, among quite a few other things, we have read the different versions of Troilus and Cressida by Shakespeare and Chaucer, Euripides' "Bacchae", some of Alexander Pope's poetry and some of Ruskin's writings, "All Quiet on the Western Front", "Gulliver's Travels" and recently "The Iliad".
We get books either from the library, cheaply second-hand from the likes of Amazon or, strangely enough, members find they have already got them - possibly unread.
We would be happy to include a few more members.
